Pubs and restaurants

The First Minister confirmed pubs and restaurants should close today from 5pm. This leaves just five hours of trading time from the announcement.

This includes both indoor and outdoor hospitality venues.

Hotel restaurants can remain open, but only to provide food for residents.


A travel limit of five miles has been introduced, much like the beginning of initial restrictions in March. 

Scots should avoid travelling to Aberdeen, however people in Aberdeen can still travel further for work if required.

Anyone who is currently visiting Aberdeen has been told they do not have to return early.


People in Aberdeen have been told they should no longer be meeting family and friends inside houses.
